Mission Statement

The mission of the StanCares Team is to promote a safe and productive learning, living and working environment by addressing the needs of students through coordination and assessment of information and developing a supportive plan.   

What We Do

The StanCares Team reviews reports to assess available information about whether a student, campus community member, group or situation poses a threat, and determines a course of action to support the campus community member and intervene before behavior escalates.

The StanCares Team receives reports from departments across campus and from the community about concerns regarding the wellbeing and behavior of campus community members. The team tailors their response to each report by providing specific guidance, resources and referrals to students, staff and faculty.

The StanCares Team provides follow-up and support to campus community members. The StanCares Team is coordinated jointly by and submits recommendations to the Vice President for Student Affairs and the Vice President of Faculty Affairs and Human Resources.
